strength, which is new york's coastal environment, that's what made new york new york, right? new york harbor, hudson river, to the erie canal, and you were out west. that was new york. what made manhattan manhattan was the underground infrastructure. that engineering marvel. once you now say, well, that can flood, and you can't even find a way to pump out the water, you take the greatest asset and you make it a liability. and it's a frightening premise to deal with, you know? i think that's one of the reasons why denial is so much easier. because once you say, yes, extreme weather is here to say, we have to redesign this environment environment, well that's a big undertaking and it's threatening to many. i think that's where we are. >> can new york city escape the sort of national flurosis? it's a fight on the national level. out of necessity, can new york state and new york city lead on this issue because we have to, even if the rest of the country isn't ready to arrive at any consensus and make any big national decisions? >> we're going to try. you know, what we practice in new york
. >> i heard of head of coca-colaed that the business environment in america is less hospitable than the business environment in china, i think we have a problem. whether it's energy or regulation or tax policy or labor policy or legal policy or health care policy, i want america to be the best place for business. >> mr. romney wants business to come to america. i wonder if that includes all those jobs that were outsourced by companies that his firm, bain capital, invested in? fool, don't be fooled by moderate mitt, no matter how much he hopes you will. joining me is david corn from mother jones and an msnbc political analyst, who also unveiled this newest romney tape. and maria theresa kumar, president and ceo of voter latino and an msnbc contributor. thank you both for joining me. >> thank you, reverend. >> david, what do these latest tapes tell you about governor romney? >> i'm glad you played that second tape. if you listen to it carefully and think about it for a moment, it says that mitt romney wants america to compete with china for having an environment more hospitable for bu
for over 400 years. it is a very urban environment. it is not like some of the areas for long island and recent histories with houses way out onto beach territory. some of them situated. it is not the kind of island environment where you think of yourselves as having ocean on the sides and i was born and raised here on staten island and so were my mom and dad. staten island has had a feeling of what you had said. the complete opposite. there was never a threat. people never thought that there would be problems with the tides. here on staten island. and i think that is what caught a lot of people off guard here on staten island was that we never thought something like this could happen. we do have many beautiful houses and beautiful community that is are on the coast lines of our island. and we never thought there would be a problem like this. and i think that caught a lot of people off guard. >> michael cusik thank you very much for joining us tonight. tomorrow night, msnbc will host a concert and telethon to raise money for the american red cross relief efforts. you can see it right
rags. more blow back earlier but it's a news environment where they feel they can air whatever they want, people will be talk about sandy, ar by trait it after the election. >> this is the obama campaign's response to that ad. take a look at it. >> and now, after romney's false claim of jeep outsourcing to china, chrysler itself has refuted romney's lie. the truth, jeep is adding jobs in ohio. >> well, i mean, so do you have that response. you have -- i just think there are auto workers in ohio that know that their factory doors have remained open because of the choice the president made when he first took office. >> absolutely. i spent time recently in columbus which interestingly is a very bipartisan town, be democratic mayor, a bunch of republican city fathers spent money on infrastructure, supported the auto industry, they have a delegation to china to do deals like this one, to look for ways factory workers in columbus can sell to chinese. i think american workers are savvier about globalization and the opportunity it presents. >> that's not what the obama campaign thinks.
, but it won't go unnoticed, as chuck says, in this media environment. >> let's listen to what governor new jersey of chris christie had to say on the "today" show and on "morning joe." >> i was on midnight last night with the president. personally. he has expa dieted new jersey as a major disaster area. the president has been outstanding in this. the president has been all over of this and he deserves great credit. i've been on the phone with him, yesterday personally three times. he gave me his number at the white house, told me to call him if i needed anything. he absolutely means it. >> that's great. >> it's been very good. it's been very good working with the president. and his administration. >> he also responded with annoyance after a fox news personality asked him on a political question about mitt romney. let's take a listen. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. >> right. >> i have a job to do here in nng nj. i have 2.4 million people out of power.
they weren't going to act on. >> it is interesting the politics in a tough economic environment, the first thing that goes is the environment. it just is, fair or unfair. >> the house of representatives under democratic control was able to pass that cap in trade legislation. look no further than missouri or virginia where you had democratic senators who had big coal industries who were probably a little scared of actually going on legislation like that. >> we're going to take a break. when we come back, we're going to talk a little bit about cars. anyway, trivia time. we asked the last republican elected from new jersey. the answer, clifford p. case. he was first elected to the senate in 1954 and he served until new jersey republicans rejected him for a fifth term in the primary. the state hasn't elected a republican senator yesterday and chris christie was the first republican to get over 50% in over 20 years when he won. we'll be right back. ♪ i'd like to thank eating right, whole grain, multigrain cheerios! mom, are those my jeans?

business environment in china than the united states. well, why is that? it's because they have no worker protections, no environmental -- >> they have no human rights, david. >> and low wages. so is he saying he wants to bring us back to that point? like to the days of cal coolidge as joy suggests? >> david, yes. >> there's a lot going on that doesn't compute and when it does compute it's rather scary. >> there's something called the moonlight magnolia theory of economics. the south practices it right now. when you strip away unions and you can lower wages, businesses are more profitable. that's why wall street -- you see the stock market tick up when companies lay people off because it's considered more efficient. >> romney's closing campaign appears to be focused on frightening people. in ohio he puts out an ad that frightens people as david has said into believing they will lose their job in the auto industry but in virginia he frightens them into believing they will lose their health care. listen to this. >> perhaps needing the care of a specialist, if he or she makes a call to the d
is the role of print media now in a social media dominated environment. >> he says, i find it to be very beneficial. how do i find if it is working? >> the fact that he can see it. a lot of times it is the ego you pick up the local newspaper or magazine and there is your ad. you feel good about it. there are ways. there are magazines. if you hint that you are willing to advertise more, you can ask them to perform a special survey of the readers to see if they recalled your ad, they do a post and after publication. if you want to know, you have to put a code in. you have to have some kind of -- whether it is an 800 number or some kind of thing, there has to be a code there so you can track it. otherwise, you just won't know. there's no way. >> is there any place, brian, for small businesses where you can track every dollar and see your return on it. if you don't have a big budget, should you spend any money on traditional media? >> i wouldn't. i'm a wayne gretzky fan and there's a famous quote where somebody asked him, why, wayne, are you so much better than the other hockey players? i sk
to face a changing environment? >> you know, i think, arguably, it's a hard question to answer, but i think arguably more than any other place in the country, i mean, new york geography has been destiny for new york, but i think more so for here. i think we're moving now into a new phase of its history. we have been for some time, but i think that sandy underscores it really, really dramatically. with san francisco and hong kong, one of the three greatest deepwater ports in the world. that's why new york became new york. a thousand ships. the dutch could see it in the 17th century, could ride and anchor in new york harbor. anchor in new york harbor. new yorkers had an extraordinary ability to leverage from the start, that geography. so i'm not content with the geography that nature had given them in the early 19th century. they went out and built the eerie canal, a 363-mile ditch that connected new york harbor and the great lakes. so not only do they have the greatest natural port in the western hemisphere, everything grown, mined, harvested, now had to come down right by the battery
headaches for mitt romney. while protecting our environment. across america, these technologies protect air - by monitoring air quality and reducing emissions... ...protect water - through conservation and self-contained recycling systems... ... and protect land - by reducing our footprint and respecting wildlife. america's natural gas... domestic, abundant, clean energy to power our lives... that's smarter power today. prand you're seeing that rightno enequit in amnow.a...ives... over five million new jobs. exports up forty one percent. home values... rising. our auto industry... back. and our heroes are coming home. we're not there yet, but we've made real progress and the... last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so r
are intelligent, they care about the environment, they care about social justice, they care about causes like women's right to choose, et cetera. and those white voters will stay with the president in significant numbers and that's what will bring him to victory in pennsylvania. pennsylvania is a state with about a 10% to 12% african-american population and about a 6% to 8% latino population. so white voters still dominate pennsylvania and you got to get your share. the president does. the president in '08 when he carried this state by 11 points he lost 11 out of the 12 southwestern pennsylvania traditionally democratic counties which are all essentially blue collar, white working class counties where they are pretty much pro gun and fairly conservative democrats. but he still won the state by 11 points. >> governor, i've seen a lot of smart people say and write obama can't lead romney can work across the aisle that's why we should go for romney. which of course builds, plays in to the strategy of obstruction. republicans refuse to work with obama, making him seem like he can't lead and romne
a regulatory environment that encourages investment and certainty. that those are improving the situation. governor romney is also, however, correct that there's a long way to go. and that there are lots of people in ohio and elsewhere around this country who are unemployed or underemployed and we have huge progress. and 2% gdp growth is nothing to crow about. in fact it's less growth than in 2011 and less than 2010. >> all the economic news is about republican policies and all the bad economic news is because of democratic policies? it's funny, it's just disingenuous. >> how much of this is a problem in terms of how people feel, rachel. we see more economic optimism in the country and yet people are still feeling like the obama record is lackluster and you look at the recovery still not feeling like it's robust enough. >> and you see it just in the raw consumer confidence numbers. you see consumer confidence trending up and the unemployment rate trending down and you see the deficit dropping year to year. you see things going in the right direction. people have to decide if they want to
proactively do in this environment to erase that? >> it is a historic storm and historic race and a moment in history. a lot of history in one sentence. thank you to ari, lawrence, joy and steve. you can catch steve on "the cycle" at 3:00 p.m. and, of course, you can and must catch lawrence -- >> oh, no. we're not so sure about that. we may not have power in the building at 10:00 p.m. >> you'll do it by candlelight because you're a good soldier. >> all right. >> the news never stops. let them have the last word at 10:00 on msnbc. see you back at noon eastern, 9:00 pacific joined by richard, curt, and nicolas. until then find us at facebook.com/now with alex. "andrea mitchell reports" is next. a lot going on this afternoon. over to you. >> thanks so much, alex. we are tracking hurricane sandy with live reports from up and down the east coast. widespread flooding already happening hours ahead of sandy's landfall. we'll check in with delaware governor jack markell and pennsylvania senator bob casey ahead and hear from both campaigns, all that next on "andrea mitchell reports." we've all had t
. this is experience from the past that's helping us in this current environment. >> philadelphia mayor michael nutter. thank you so much. again, and good luck as daylight comes. >> thank you. >> and you guys are going to have a lot of work to do. the federal government has declared a number of states of emergency including an emergency in pennsylvania. this afternoon the president said officials would be ready to help as soon as the storm passes. >> we have prepositioned assets so that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. we're making sure that food and water and emergency generation is available for those communities that are going to be hardest hit. transportation is going to be tied up for a long time and probably the most significant impact for a lot of people in addition to flooding is going to getting power back on. the fact is a lot of emergency crews are not going to be able to get into position to start restoring power until some of these winds have died down. you know, this is going to be a big storm. it's going to be a difficult storm. the great thing about
, and there's been much debate over did they need to close it or not? remember the environment that we're in. it is all about investor confidence. even if they felt like that the backup systems would most likely work, there was no one running any of these organizations that believed on sunday night with 100% certainty when they turned those machines on they would be working. remember what investors have gone through over the last year. they've gone through the bad ipos, you remember facebook's trading debacle. if simple investors can tolerate -- if you bought at&t stock and it went up and down, you'd be comfortable with that. the exchange you trade on, if that doesn't work that's when investors pick up the pennies and put them under their mattress. it was so important for the nyse and nasdaq to know they could ensure complete confidence in investors. it's a challenging two days having the market shut down, but for one of the first times in history, whether we talk to bank ceos or the heads, it's been about put money second and safety first. tomorrow is very important to have these exchanges
hundreds of thousands of people live very close to each other. this sort of city environment only allows people to live that close to one another because of the intensively-used infrastructure. it's infrastructure that allows this place to support this much life. that allows us to cram this many humans into this small a space. and here's what some of that infrastructure looks like tonight. you're looking at a new york city subway station. which now looks like a dirty aquarium. the subway system is the veins underneath this city that provide life. they are the special infrastructure that allows the city to separate. for the rich, the poor, and everybody in between. right now, it's swamped. you can't even get down on to the subway platforms because the water is everywhere. the army corps of engineers has been called in by officials to help drain these subway tunnels. a task that the army corps has never had to do before. the manhattan burro president is calling this the biggest disaster in the 108-year history of this subway system. before this, the only place they had ever operated was in
and we don't want to be naked political in an environment like this but the white house and the campaign recognized quickly. suspend anything that looks like politics. assume the commander in chief role and the role of the president there and a needed role. >> mike from the white house, thank you. >> okay. >> the cost of the storm quickly multiplying, upwards of $50 billion despite precautions, 61 people are dead. thousands of homes are lost. 6 million homes and businesses are still without power stretching across 20 states. power crews from as far away as colorado are coming in to help restore the lines. the bulk of the outages in new york and new jersey. in new jersey, 2 million in the dark, including residents in hoboken across the hudson river from manhattan where 200,000 residents are still stranded in the floodwaters and busted natural gas lines fueled a massive morning fire in new jersey but the main bridge was not stable enough to cross and all emergency vehicles rerouted through toms river and find michele franzen. you have seen your fair share of water rescues there. >> reporte
environment problem. he's got an intensity problem. he's got an image problem. and he's got a ballot problem. and they all add up to a challenging tuesday next week. >> image problem? that's a new one. romney campaign senior advisers are out and about, making bold statements to reporters, yet providing little evidence. >> the firewall that i think they talked about was iowa, wisconsin, and ohio. and right now, their firewall is burning. >> well, but the polling tells a much different story. it's not looking pretty for mitt romney if ohio. the president has a sizable lead back in wisconsin. and he's up in virginia by five points. the president even has a narrow lead in florida. today, mitt romney campaigned in florida, to try to make up some ground. but it may be too late. nbc affiliate wttv obtained a memo from a worried gop adviser in west palm beach. >> we obtained an internal memo from a gop campaign adviser that says early and absentee turnout is starting to look troubling. the memo's conclusion? that the democratic turnout machine is cleaning our clock. >> in the meantime, romney's camp
to the media environment over the course of the week, it's blackout coverage. so the president's been in that coverage. and to some extent, much driven by the storm but he's -- he's there, he's the president on screen. governor romney has been nowhere. he's just -- it's not his fault. he's just not part of this conversation. he doesn't have anything to say about it. he doesn't have a role to play. so if you're a challenger, running a presidential campaign, in the last week to essentially be blocked from the airwaves for five straight days it's a big problem. forget whether he had momentum or didn't. it's a huge problem for a challenger. the presidential looked presidential. the combination of that the fact he's gotten policy right, substance right, optics right, and has gotten boost that he's gotten from governor christie, which has been huge, i think, not game changer, but to whatever extent you could weigh this in out -- who knows what the effect is on tangible votes -- but in terms of what's happened over the week a good week for president obama, and a problematic week for governor

't much he was able to do unless democrats wanted to go there. this is a very very different environment he would find himself in in washington. and again his problem is that eric cantor and a lot of republicans aren't willing to compromise, aren't willing to reach out to anybody. his problem is going to be with his own party. democrats have been willing all along to sit down and talk about some common approaches to some serious problems and republicans. >> indeed just three days to go. thank you sir. >> thank you, martin. >> and thanks so much for watching our special broadcast tonight.

, the environment, the dignity of immigrants, civil liberties, we see these issues as deeply bound up in one another, and unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on who you are, governor romney with his 47% comment, would go and borrow money from your parents has done a worse job in showing how out of touch he is with this generation. >> what i feel we're hearing, in 2012. you're with the roosevelt institute which is taking young people like this, training them for exactly this kind of integrated big thinking. is there any way to make that penetrate our presidential process? >> i think their absolutely is. i think everybody is right here, that young people are motivated by values. they are motivated by high ideals, and we see that at the roosevelt campus network. we have 10,000 students on 100 campuses across the country. we know what we need to do with them is to reinvent the way they are going to engage in the political process. so what our young people really want to do, of course they want to vote. of course they want to register. what they also want to do is engage in their own communities. th

we live on, the ecosystem is different, the environment is different, and we will fundamentally need to rebuild at some level. now, we are already investing tens of billions of dollars in the project of homeland security. we have tried to protect ourselves from terrorism. we have not done a very good job protecting ourselves from these completely predictable routine events. and i think at a minimum we need to have a conversation about how to redistrict homeland security so that this becomes an agency that actually safeguards us. >> well, this brings up a good point. "a," this point that i'm obsessed with and i ride the hobbyhorse on the show all the time and we have the argument, government good or bad, bureaucracy, good or bad, and bureaucratic performance exists on the massive spectrum. some really, really work and some are dysfunctional disasters, right? and the question is how do we move them and get good governance at our institutions. ed markey said this will be for climate for what 9/11 changed our terrorism policy, and i'm not sure that what the -- what we built -- my inner l
on to the environment. one of the big failures of his first term was cap and trade. the vote on that which really hurt democrats is something that has made them gunshy about talking about that issue, but i think there's no doubt if the president wins and he gets a budget deal, he will move to immigration and energy including trying to deal with climate change. that is in some ways the toughest issue because house republicans are willing to raise taxes in the end, i think, they're not willing to deal with this. >> dr. sachs, stay with us. chuck, thank you. we'll see you on "the daily rundown" at 9:00. up next, meteorologist bill karins with the latest on sandy's track as the storm's outer bands begin to come ashore. we'll be right back. email marketing from constant contact reaches people in a place they're checking every day -- their inbox. and it gives you the tools to create custom emails that drive business. it's just one of the ways constant contact can help you grow your small business. sign up for your free trial today at constantcontact.com/try. >>> welcome back to "morning joe." it's 7:35 here
